THE BLACK HOUSE - PAGE 21

Cuz sometimes I write about writing. And sometimes I write. Here's a tiny piece of the latter.

  • INT. BLACK HOUSE - OPS ROOM - DAY
  • Mission control. Big screens and monitors. A couple of rows of computer stations and CONTROL OFFICERS. All overseen by JENNIFER VAN RIJN (mid-thirties, hair tied up in a loose pony tail that says she’s been on duty too damn long, dressed in gear similar to Mister Jordan’s).
  • JENNIFER
  • Get the remote viewer and see if she can lock onto his aura.
  • (dumps her head into her palm)
  • Ohmigod, did I just say “aura?”
  • Ben enters, flanked by Mister Jordan and a curious Danni.
  • BEN
  • What have we got, Jennifer?
  • JENNIFER
  • What you have is a trained, former CIA officer talking like some kind of new age conspiracy nut and rediscovering her sense of self-loathing. Thanks for that, by the way.
  • (gestures to the monitors)
  • What I have is Sayf al-Haque. One of our cats spotted him at a truck stop near Minneapolis-St.Paul about ten minutes ago.
  • Danni steps toward Mister Jordan, who keeps his eye on the situation monitors.
  • DANNI
  • (whispers to Jordan)
  • She said cats. That’s not, like, an acronym is it?
  • Mister Jordan shakes his head, though with a disdainful sneer.
